About
Afrocuba is one of North Jersey's most sought after performance/dance bands for weddings, private parties, festivals and corporate events. Listen to authentic Cuban and Latin Jazz played by New York City's best percussionists and instrumentalists.

Afrocuba Band plays covers from great Latin Legends of the 70s. Some of these include: Tito Puente, Ray Barreto, Ruben Blades, Fania-All-Stars, Ismael Rivera, Cheo Feliciano, El Gran Combo, Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez, Tommy Olivencia, Frankie Ruiz, Ismael Miranda

Afrocuba Band was formed in 2001 by John Acevedo (musical director and bass player), Kevin Ortiz (Timbalero), Mario Duque (Pianist), and Alex Dieguez (Conga). Afrocuba's original repertoire consisted primarily of classic, old school, Cuban music and, in 2004, slowly evolved to include Puerto Rican and Colombian influences as well. Afrocuba Band has gained much popularity among salsa dancers in the New Jersey/North Jersey and New York City area and has gained an impressive following of fans.

John and his band (Afrocuban) were amazing. From the first moment I booked them, john has been extremely accommodating and patient with me...especially with all my changes and special requests. The theme for this 70th anniversary party was old Vintage Cuba and they truly helped me feel as if we had stepped back in time. The music was amazing from beginning to end. They worked well with the other performers and vendors allowing the whole performance to flow beautifully. J would definitely recommend them for any event you may have. Class A and truly amazing.

Afrocuba’s Response:

The host could not have been any nicer or more gentlemanly. I planned on being there two hours before, however, my tresero did not have transportation so we needed to pick him up in manhattan. We started on time but i would have rather setup when folks were not there. Regardless the host was so nice and evryone seemed to give us really good feedback. We are gratefull for playing at this venue and really enjoy a super participatory crowd. Thanks again for the business John
